Narrow Seas Game Plan
It's my birthday tomorrow and, by an unexpected twist of events, I have the day off from my new job as a supply teacher. Woo hoo! To make the most of this fortuitous opportunity, I've decided to spend some of the morning on a play test run through of Schnell Rules for Schnellboote! using my early to mid-war S9 and S26 class E Boats against my RN Fairmile B ML's and Vosper 72.5' MTBs. I haven't worked out a scenario yet but it will probably be a simple encounter at night, somewhere in the North Sea c1942. I'm looking forward to trying the rules for spotting, movement and firing, so that I can get a firm grip on the rules mechanisms and the 'feel' of the game itself. It will also be good preparation for a potential three or four player club game at some point next month.
